Have you given up on the idea that recovery from grief is possible?  That's easy to do when you're bombarded with faulty and conflicting messages such as it just takes time but after yearrs you still can't look at a photograph of a loved one who died.  Or the opposite that grief never ends.  Either way, the message is pretty clear- there's nothing you can really do about it so you might as well just push through as best as you can.  Would you give up on healing a broken arm or tooth, or would you seek professional attention?  
If you finally knew how to help your child through grief, what could that mean for you, your family, your professional life?  
The Grief Recovery Method® was born out of John James’ relentless search for what to do about the pain of his son’s death and ultimately for the answer to whether his life could be worth living after suffering that devestating loss with no longterm relief in sight.  That’s what we’re talking about here.  If you’re looking for any sign of hope, you’ve come to the right place and are welcomed with love and compassion.  

In 2010, I was nearly leveled by a divorce when a friend suggested that I try the Grief Recovery Method because it had helped him so much with a loss of his several years prior.  Not only did I get the freedom from releasing deep pain, but I also found that nice memories remained happy.  After taking this class, I was able to concentrate on important tasks at hand again even though I had been barely able to get out of bed or function until I addressed this grief.   This approach gave me a completely new experience with the memories and feelings that had accumulated in that relationship that brought me to the Grief Recovery Institute.  


That feeling like my heart was being ripped out of my chest was incredibly released and what remained was a softer, more trusting, and more peaceful feeling in my heart.  I then proceeded to use this method for all kinds of emotional pain from pet loss, moving, lawsuits, relationship issues, serious illness, kids growing up and relocating, car accident injuries to breakups, and more and I continue to use this method to keep current in all my relationships so that I’m not storing more pain.  That allowed me to be more present,l engaged, and loving in all my current relationships and to have the confidence to address other losses and life transitions that I experience.  

Even when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was able to utilize this method to process the many feelings and made decisions with a clear head.  And then later after dealing with some negative side effects of treatments and learning about some hopeful, empowering solutions, I naturally had some big feelings.  I needed to process those big feelings before I could focus on some fantastic tools, self-care practices, and mindset shifts that have made a huge difference in the quality of my life.  But if I were distracted by unresolved grief, I'd be just going through the motions.   And ALL my relationships benefit from the investment I make in healing my heart.

Aligned with core values of compassion, authenticity, and presence, I imagine an emotionally honest world where we
✔️  stop missing out on our true hearts’ desires out of fear of being hurt
✔️  follow simple, clearly defined steps to express and let go of the pain of grief as a natural routine  
✔️ model emotionally honest communication to our youth, raising an equipped, trusting generation that processes their feelings and support each other
✔️ tap into more of our academic, personal, and professional potential without the clutter of unfinished emotional business getting in the way of our focused attention 
✔️empower students in high burnout/high compassion fatigue fields with effective tools to stay focused, successful, and emotionally healthy 
✔️provide all educators with the confidence and skills to support emotional wellbeing, so that they are prepared when (not if) the unexpected happens 
You can work with me individually or in groups ONLINE from your comfy home.    Either way, you'll receive the tools, guidance, and partnership to address significant loss in your life. 
Or work with me on learning how to support kids who are in emotional pain of loss, change, or disappointment.  I  offer adults the 4 week course Helping Children With Loss® where you'll learn the skillset for working with kids in a professional or educational setting or at home wih your own children.   This training is conducted ONLINE for now. 

Also, ask me about bringing the 8 week The Grief Recovery Method Support Group®, 4 week Helping Children With Loss®, and 6 week Pet Loss Group® to your place of business, worship in an ONLINE format.  


Proud to speak about impact of emotional pain on productivity, work relationships, and company culture as well as present on a number of grief-related topics.  Please inquire about your biggest challenge and how I can equip your team with tools and support to address any unfinished emotional business that's getting in the way of their focused attention.  My skills in pulling out the grief pieces of your challenges can provide targeted solutions and effective strategies to exceed your goals.
